The "Big One" hit yesterday. The first real snowfall of the 2012. We had a few teasers in the last month but the wind, cold and 6in. of white stuff was the real deal. The hospital had a "code white"..didn't really matter to us because the snow didn't start falling until we all had made the trek in and so did all our patients. Just for the record, patients always make it in for surgery....always! But we moved the surgery schedule along and as soon as the people with the farthest distance could leave, they headed for home. Very carefully! The other problem we have is drifting across the many open fields around here. Tonight coming home I spied a poor girl in a very deep ditch with her car. I stopped to make sure she was OK and to help. Her hubby was on the way but they would need a tow truck to bring it out of that ditch. Luckily she was fine and the car really had no visible damage. I was glad to make it home fine.
You can't tell that the snow is coming down hard in this pic of the backyard.
Hmmm...this pic looks very familiar to me.....(some scenes never change throughout the years! Except for the size of the trees!)
This is the path we shovel out on the deck so Eddy the boxer can get to his watering hole..if you get my drift..snow drift..get it? Never mind.
I guess we won't be dining outside tonight. Someone really should put away the outdoor furniture! I even have planters with some plants still in them! Oh well, it will give me something to do in the Spring. Yep, winter is really here. Brrrrrrr!
